Post Laminectomy Syndrome Kennesaw, GA

Post Laminectomy Syndrome

When a patient undergoes back surgery and still suffers from chronic back pain after the procedure, it is called post-laminectomy syndrome, or failed back syndrome. This is a frustrating condition that is the result of many factors that may or may not be related to the surgery. Finding the cause of the pain and the right treatment is vital to alleviate the pain. Our pain experts at Medici Medical Arts use the most advanced methods to diagnose and treat post-laminectomy syndrome and give patients relief from their chronic pain.

Back surgery is usually the last resort for treating back pain when conservative treatments have failed. A spine or back surgery may be recommended if there is visible damage to the spinal vertebrae, lamina or discs that are believed to be causing chronic pain. Whether it is a laminectomy or other type of spine surgery, the goal is to relieve the pain. Unfortunately, many patients experience post-laminectomy, or failed back syndrome, and still are suffering after undergoing surgery.

Causes of Failed Back Syndrome

There are many reasons that back surgery may not stop chronic pain. There is a chance that even though a damaged spinal component could be causing the pain, it may not be the only source of pain. Although the spine is repaired, there is inflammation or other types of nerve root compression that continue to result in chronic back pain. Additionally, the surgery may have created scar tissue or damaged nerves, causing pain in the same location.

Treating Post Laminectomy Syndrome

At Medici Medical Arts, we focus on finding the source of pain and providing non-invasive treatments for relief. Our multidisciplinary approach is used to address the source of the pain and give our patients options to block or mitigate the pain. Every treatment plan for failed back syndrome may be different but can include physical therapy, medication management, PENS, spinal cord stimulation and injection therapy.

If you had back surgery and still suffer from chronic back pain, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. We will help improve your quality of life with innovative treatment options at our clinics near Atlanta.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
